2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the pork

  • Pat the pork dry with a paper towel. Season generously with salt and pepper and rub all over with the paprika.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the pork and cook, turning frequently, until browned but still faintly pink within, 8 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a plate. 

While the pork cooks, prepare the kale.


Prep and cook the kale

  • Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Zest and juice the orange, keeping the zest and juice separate. Set aside the zest for the aillade.
  • Strip the kale leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. 

In another large frying pan over medium heat, warm 1 to 2 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and starting to caramelize, 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the orange juice, raisins, and as many chile flakes as you like. Working in batches if needed, add the kale and cook, stirring occasionally, until just wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

While the kale cooks, prepare the aillade.


Make the aillade

  • Finely chop the pecans.

In a small bowl, stir together the pecans, salsa verde, and orange zest. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the pork and kale to individual plates. Top the pork with the aillade and serve.
